Newly-single Morgan has been bowled over by cricket star Graeme

SINGER Morgan Deane has set tongues wagging about a new romance following her shock split with socialite Dave Murphy.

The Cork-born beauty appears to have wasted little time in moving on following the couple's break-up earlier this year, after being linked to hunky South African-born Graeme Smith.

The stunning brunette caused a stir by referring to the well-known sportsman, who is the captain of the South African cricket team, as "my handsome man" on her Facebook social networking page.

Morgan (26) also posted a number of pictures of her and Graeme on her page, while Smith himself has uploaded a picture of the pair looking cosy together, as his profile picture.

The talented singer jetted out to India last Friday, where Graeme is preparing for his third World Cup cricket campaign.

The high-profile sportsman and his teammates have been in Asia since last week, when they attended the opening ceremony of the 2011 Cricket World Cup at Bangabandhu National Stadium in Bangladesh on Thursday. Those close to the ambitious beauty have been left stunned by the latest development in her love life however, explaining how she has been keeping any potential romance with the sports star under wraps to date.

"Morgan certainly hasn't been broadcasting the news if she and Graeme are seeing each other," said a close pal.

"She's only just broken up with Dave and she seems intent on keeping her love life private.

"She has been really busy focusing on her work and is still on a high after Jedward were chosen to represent Ireland at the Eurovision.

"She is in India to take some time out before her hectic schedule kicks off again and is due back next week for her music slot on RTE's Two Tube. She's also just released some solo material of her own so she'll have her hands full promoting that," the source added.

The Diary exclusively revealed earlier this month how Morgan had moved out of the D4 love-nest she shared with former flame Dave.

Morgan is expected to be in the line-up to see who will sing Ireland's entry Lipstick at this year's Eurovision Song Contest, which takes place in Dusseldorf, Germany in May. The song is already making waves after entering the Irish chart at No. 2 this week.
